Slovenian proofing tools for Office 365 (Office 2016) on a Mac

I'm using a Mac computer in addition to Windows computers. I was surprised to find out, that when I select the "Slovenian" language in word, the proofing tools (spell checker) do not work.

While investigating this in Excel (which has a slightly more informative language selector dialog), I noticed that the Slovenian language is not "Installed".

I know that Office supports Slovenian language (and also, Office Online supports it), so I started searching for a "language pack". I did find langugage packs for Office 2016, but only for Windows. So, the question really is: is it true that language packs are available only for Windows?

Or can I download the "exe" language pack, open it and extract the Slovenian proofing tools from there somehow?

It seems almost unbelievale to me that languages would be limited to the platform.


Kind regards,


Yes, it's true. Mac Word lacks most of the Proofing Tools included in the Windows version & has no additional Language Packs available.
